N’Golo Kante wants to play for Antonio Conte, will snub Arsenal and Man Utd


Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante is a man in demand this summer.

The French international is a target for Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Juventus.

According to Telegraph, Kante prefers playing under Antonio Conte and will therefore snub Arsenal and Manchester United.

The player has been offered a bumper new deal at King Power Stadium, but he fancies a move to Chelsea this summer.

Kante has a 20 million pounds release clause in his current contract.

Kante is one of the best defensive midfielders in England right now and would be a terrific addition for Chelsea. The Blues struggled in that department last season when Matic failed to replicate his form from the debut season and Conte is ready to add some depth to that position now.

Chelsea have failed with their attempts to land Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan and are now eyeing up a move for his teammate Axel Witsel.

Meanwhile, a deal for Michy Batshuayi should be official soon. Telegraph are claiming that a 33 million pounds fee has been agreed and the player has completed his medical tests. The Marseille striker will earn around 110,000 pounds per week at Stamford Bridge.
